Wrong Kay.
I know several priests who had girlfriends while in high school or college. They usually don't take their vows until they are late 20's and early 30's. They have a choice, an option, to do whatever they want. They know full well what their options are. They can get married and be deacons. They can serve God in the Church however they please. They choose celibacy because it is their calling.
"Saint Paul made a choice of his own...at a time when others did not make that choice."
Wrong again. Many in the early Church were voluntarily celibate. The bible has lots of passages in praise of celibacy. We are called to be saints. St. Paul praised celibacy. He recommended it. St. Paul CHOSE celibacy because it was his calling. Jesus said whoever can do so does it for the kingdom.
Why do I sense resentment from you towards those in the Catholic Church who can faithfully give up sex in order to glorify God?
Boys do kiss and tell, huh? Perhaps their consciences were wounded, or their hearts were broken...so they needed an escape.

No resentment against those who TRY. We are talking about those who FAIL. And God's commandment says 'multiply, and replenish the earth'.
Jesus said that celibacy was not an easy choice...only those called to be so could handle it. What is it about celibacy that glorifies God...especially when the molesters are plainly NOT celibate.

Saint Paul says ( 1Co 9:5) Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife,(as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas)?

And another issue I have with your post here Kay; are you suggesting that young people should commit fornication so they can know what they're missing before they choose celibacy?
Are YOU saying that they DO commit fornication? LOL

Oh, that is right...you DID say that high school and college buddies did.

Darn, I thought you were going to back up your statements with some links for once.

You can't absolve the RCC by dragging others through the muck.

The simple ... logical ... reasonable ... FACT is that it is highly unlikely that any God would allow his so-called "morals" teacher to bring humanity the largest child sex-abuse COVER-UP in world history.

That would be a very arbitrary god, with no concept of accountability.

That is very, very unlikely.

I think whatever higher power exists is far better than that.

No wonder that you are bitter. You should be in a Christian home...and you should ENCOURAGE your little woman; after all, women are RESPONDERS.

If you growl and slap her around, don't think she will be happy with you.

it's more to than that clay,it's that idol of mary sitting your yard or another saint you may have,mary seems to be the most popular,if the muslims really start going after catholics their houses won't be hard to find.

No you're not fooling anyone Michael. In fact, you make me sick to my stomach even replying to you.
The CC would have spent twice as much trying to fight it. And you know it.
So long. I'm officially done with Topix. Congrats Miguel... your unrelenting ignorance and slander has worked.
Yes, the RCC is certainly fighting "it."

That's why Vatican leadership has continually invoked 'diplomatic immunity' when asked to testify or provide evidence about "it" on 5 continents.

Or as the RCC prays today -- Thank you, Saint Benito Mussolini for all of your favors.

A story written by an abuse victim from the age of 7 until age ll from 1953 to 1957. He claims he was one of several victims at the hands of a priest from Denver.
This victim wrote a letter to the Pope in 1993 telling him of his 40 years of torment, agony and pain at the hands of this priest.
The Pope never responded back to him.

<quoted text>i'm feeling ok,i haven't followed the nuns story that much,i can understand there gripes,women are second class citizens according tob the bible,they are suppose to stay home clean the house take care of kids and do what ever their husbands tell them to do.and the nuns/women have no real voice in the church,for that matter no one in the catholic church has a say in what goes on,everything is done by the vatican council behind closed doors.
A woman has no higher calling than to be a 'home-maker' and mother.
They've been lied to; I know several that needed 'careers' instead of wiping dirty noses, and changing diapers.

They took nurses training, and now wipe the noses and change the diapers of old men in nursing homes.

Their babies (if they have any) are left to providence to 'raise' them...no tender mothering...and they grow up calloused enough to shoot up Sandy Hook, etc.

Perhaps. Or perhaps your ignorance and bigotry prevents you from admitting that there are Catholic men who love God so much that they willingly give up sex for the kingdom.

There has always been abuse in every group that every existed.. in the history of use world. Start with that fact, then you'll see how stupid you are for singling out the CC. Also, I can barely type the word 'child sex'. I have no idea how you and Free manage to type 14 times a day for two yrs straight! Something is very disturbing about that. I suspect your computer contains things that could put you in prison...
he is singling out the C.C. because this is a catholic forum,if it were an open forum of abuse in multiple organizations we would be discussing them all,but that'a not the case here,we shouldn't be talking about the abuse,we should be discussing the churches rediculous statement of being the true church of christ,when there is no historical facts anywhere to support their claim.

You make no sense again Anthony.

No one has to give up sex in order to have the kingdom. Aren't you one of them?(lol)

Why would a man sacrifice his entire life not wanting a loving wife and the joy of children, and grandchildren for low wages/long hours, and lonliness as many claim, with no more special treatment in getting to heaven than anyone else in the laymans world who follow the rules.

If you die and go to heaven, and Father Dye goes to heaven, you made no sacrifice to get there.

Whats the point in being a priest unless you love what you do with no more special reward in the end than you get?

... Anthony/HOJO/CLAY call us every name in the book for reporting on abuse claims in the catholic church that they should be aware of, and tell us we shouldn't be doing it, then ANTHONY posts to confrinting claiming HE is now going to post links about protestant abuses.

UNBELIEVABLE ANTHONY!

I am still waiting for Anthonys links that he promised. He won't. He just talks big.

Don't ever say no catholic would ever do this. They are no different than anyone else.
I too have grand children, and I too would be upset.
mike, I never considered that you would have done something like that, and I dont beleive that any of the catholics on here would have done that.

I beleive that the three mentioned would be the guilty party, and to hate a little baby is Pathetic, to say the least.
